Michael F. Schmidt, PE, BCEE, D.WRE
What does “listen. think. deliver.” mean to you? Listening has to come first; it’s the most important part. In the thinking phase, we should keep a focus on innovation in all aspects of the job. That way we can deliver work products within schedule and budget.
How clients describe you? Focused, innovative, dedicated, fun.
What’s something people might be surprised to know about you? When I was in college, I worked five jobs while also going to school full-time. I was a lawn service owner, college tutor, assistant on an estate, high school basketball coach, and helped out at my uncle’s ice cream parlor.
What’s your personal motto? I have a few personal mottos. Don’t forget to breathe. Never lose your sense of humor. Always eat to keep up your strength. Keep your fluids going. Sleep is good.
Truly seeking excellence leads to success in all other areas of life.
